Last night I listened to Module Two of the Amazon FBA Mastermind Training. This training is being conducted by Christine Cobb and Dr. Ellen Britt for individuals that are interested in starting an Amazon business.
The program is interactive and takes the new business owner step by step into creating their Amazon business. By the end of the five modules, the participants will be open for business and making sales.
Module Two was ALL about setting up your Amazon Seller Central Account. I have been into several of my clients Seller Central Accounts to pull reports so I have been initiated to the website. But after this Module, I am blown away by the many details to be considered in order to set up the account for the most benefit to the Seller.
It made me acutely aware that while I consider the Amazon clients financials to be the EVERYTHING of their business, there is so much more they are considering and managing. Of course, this is the case with any business, but I had minimized it in my mind. The remoteness of the work and the lack of physical or tangible assets, make it easier to see only the tip of the iceberg .
This made me think about bookskeep differently. We have some of the same challenges as our Amazon clients. While we work in a remote location from our clients, we want to feel connected to them and their success. Just as an Amazon seller doesn’t take payment from their goods behind an actual checkout counter, they still are connecting to their market and must understand their needs.
I am so thankful for Christine and Ellen for allowing me to participate in the course. I look forward to presenting on Profit First later this month. While I am not actually selling on Amazon, this course is truly helping me understand my clients business at a deeper level. It is also helping me see the parallels bookskeep has with them in the digital business world.
